While they're beautiful, they're not quite deocorated as they originally came from the factory. According to Joe Collias' Frisco Power, page 202, the paint scheme was: Blue : Boiler jacket, pilot and drive wheel centers, cylinders, tender body. Gray : Smoke box, fire box, cab roof. White : Running board edges, wheel rims (when delivered), tender stripe, engine lettering. Black : Underfame areas below running boards, tender numerals. Red : Meteor "swoosh" lettering (outlined in white) on tender (When 4500 was prepared for display in Tulsa in 1954, the "swoosh" was white outlined in red). See page 310 in Frisco Power (Frisco Museum edition) and page 8 in Frisco In color, Volume Two. Tom G.
